Country Fried Steak Recipe

Country Fried Steak

1 lb Round steak
2 tbs Bacon grease or canola oil
1/2 cup Flour
2 tbs Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
2 cups Milk
1/4 tsp Pepper

Trim visible fat from meat and cut into 4 equal serving pieces. Pound steak with a mallet to tenderize it. Mix flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow, wide bowl and dredge each piece of meat ( I pound the flour right into the meat ) coating well on both sides. Heat grease or oil until hot but not smoking in a heavy, wide skillet with a lid.

Brown the meat pieces on both sides, turn heat down a bit, cover and let steak fry like chicken for 15 to 20 minutes, until done. Remove cover and let steak crisp for about 5 minutes. Take steak from the pan and drain.

Leave about 2 tablespoons  of drippings and all the browned flecks of crust in the pan. Turn the heat a bit lower, sprinkle flour into the drippings and stir to keep from lumping while it browns. Slowly add milk, stirring. Let it cook until thick, about 3 to 5 minutes. Taste and add seasoning, if needed. Serve gravy on the side.
